A man called Chamberlain who did Prime Minister impressions spoke on the wireless he said 'As from eleven o'clock we are at war with Germany'. (I loved the 'we').
'War?' said Mother.
'It must be something we said,' said Father.
Spike Milligan's celebrated war memoirs are finally brought to the stage. This anarchic odyssey charts Gunner Milligan's progress through World War Two - and with Spike's sense of lunacy, anything can happen along the way! High comedy and tragedy collide, as we follow him and his jazz quartet, adrift on the tide of great historic events. Using Milligan's own words, the show joyously fuses comedy, song and dance - showing how humour, music and comradeship enabled a hapless bunch of young men to prevail against the might of the Nazi War machine.
Warning: contains barrack room humour!
